Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Leaving the EU: Aviation Industry (19 Apr 2018)

Stuart McDonald: A key requirement in any deal with the US may well be that UK airlines are required to be UK majority owned, yet very few would be able to meet that standard. What are the realistic chances of the US ditching that long-standing policy for the sake of the UK?

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Topical Questions (19 Apr 2018)

Stuart McDonald: Will the Minister tell us what recent research the Department has undertaken on whether shared space schemes without kerbs or controlled crossings are safe for people with vision impairments?

Syria (16 Apr 2018)

Stuart McDonald: Given what the Prime Minister said about the careful targeting of the strikes, will she tell us what sites involved in the manufacture and stockpiling of chemical weapons had to be ruled out from the scope of the strikes due to their location and proximity to civilians, what the risk of those sites continues to be and what the anticipated consequences of any future attack on them might be?

Windrush Children (Immigration Status) (16 Apr 2018)

Stuart McDonald: Is not the key point in all this that the pernicious and “hostile environment” has an impact on everybody, whether they are here legally or otherwise? People can hardly get out of bed these days without somebody asking to see their passport. Is it not time to scrap the “hostile environment”?

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Topical Questions (16 Apr 2018)

Stuart McDonald: When will the Home Office fix the disastrous mess that is being caused by the tier 2 work visa cap being exceeded for four months on the trot? Is it not time to scrap the cap?

Leaving the EU: Justice System — [Ms Karen Buck in the Chair] (29 Mar 2018)

Stuart McDonald: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Ms Buck. I pay tribute to the Select Committee and its Chair, the hon. Member for Bromley and Chislehurst (Robert Neill), for their concise, clear and balanced report on how Brexit could impact on criminal and civil justice and the legal industry. I feel like an interloper at a Justice Committee club meeting today, so I shall start by trying...

Leaving the EU: Justice System — [Ms Karen Buck in the Chair] (29 Mar 2018)

Stuart McDonald: As I said, I am very relaxed about European Court of Justice jurisdiction generally, but the hon. Lady and the Committee report make a case, specifically with regard to matters of procedure or even jurisdiction, for there being no reason for the Government to be overly concerned with the role of the Court at all. The Chair of the Select Committee, the hon. Member for Bromley and...

Leaving the EU: Justice System — [Ms Karen Buck in the Chair] (29 Mar 2018)

Stuart McDonald: That is a very fair point, and I look forward to hearing what the Minister has to say in that regard. What are the contingency plans if it becomes apparent very soon that we will not be able to secure all these arrangements within the current proposed timeframe? Finally, although justice is a devolved matter and Scotland has its own distinct legal system, it will be UK Ministers doing the...

Infected Blood Inquiry (29 Mar 2018)

Stuart McDonald: I congratulate the hon. Member for Kingston upon Hull North (Diana Johnson) on securing this urgent question and on her persistence in standing up for the victims of this scandal. I also warmly welcome what the Minister has said today. Getting the answers that the victims of this scandal deserve requires asking the right questions and making sure that the inquiry has the right remit, and it...

Women and Equalities: Universal Credit (29 Mar 2018)

Stuart McDonald: What discussions she has had with the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions on the effect of universal credit on women.

Women and Equalities: Universal Credit (29 Mar 2018)

Stuart McDonald: We know from the Women’s Budget Group that the cuts baked into universal credit—the two-child cap, the cuts to the work allowance and the benefits freeze—are having an even more detrimental impact on women than on men, so when will we see an urgent review of the gendered impact of the social security changes?

European Council (26 Mar 2018)

Stuart McDonald: It is surely not good enough for the UK—or, indeed, other EU states—to hide behind the Spanish constitution if that constitution allows for fundamental rights, freedoms and democracy to be trampled all over. Is the Prime Minister seriously saying that however many arrests occur and however many people are locked up simply for expressing their democratic views, the EU and the UK...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Topical Questions (13 Mar 2018)

Stuart McDonald: Does the Minister agree that there is overwhelming evidence that migrant workers, including EU nationals, make a hugely positive contribution to business, the economy and our public finances, and that they do not undermine wages?

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Scottish Economy (7 Mar 2018)

Stuart McDonald: Will the Secretary of State agree to meet me to discuss the potentially disastrous consequences for workers in and the community of Cumbernauld if the proposed closure of the tax office there is allowed to proceed?

Yarl’S Wood Detention Centre (6 Mar 2018)

Stuart McDonald: The large-scale, routine detention of thousands of human beings in private prisons for an indeterminate period simply at the discretion of immigration officers is, frankly, a stain on our democracy and an affront to the rule of law. This most recent horrible episode in a detention facility is far from the first, as hon. Members know, and it will not be the last unless there is radical change....

British Transport Police/ Police Scotland Merger — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (6 Mar 2018)

Stuart McDonald: That sort of example would be no more challenging with respect to cross-border rail police than would an incident on the roads, for example. Immigration officers also surely have to cross borders regularly, and powers are created to allow people to operate across borders and overcome such difficulties.

British Transport Police/ Police Scotland Merger — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (6 Mar 2018)

Stuart McDonald: Why would it be more difficult to retain a transport police function within a broader Police Scotland than to retain a firearms specialism, for example?

British Transport Police/ Police Scotland Merger — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (6 Mar 2018)

Stuart McDonald: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

British Transport Police/ Police Scotland Merger — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (6 Mar 2018)

Stuart McDonald: It is good to see you in the Chair, Mr Hollobone. I congratulate the hon. Member for Moray (Douglas Ross) on bringing the debate to the Chamber. This is clearly an issue that he feels passionately about—and quite right, too. I start by paying tribute to the officers and staff of the British Transport police for their dedicated service and hard work in making safe the journeys of...

British Transport Police/ Police Scotland Merger — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (6 Mar 2018)

Stuart McDonald: Of course there are differences between the various merger plans, but a variety of different institutions and Governments in the United Kingdom are having to make changes to how transport policing works. Indeed, the possibility flagged up in Lord Harris’s report is of integrating the specialist British Transport police on the underground into the more general Metropolitan Police...
